The good reception between family and friends made the September 16, 2006, and with the misfortune of losing Keys 1.0 in a loss of data on the server, born 2.0 Keys that has been growing until it was until yesterday.
Today, November 23, 2009, and coinciding with the 96th birthday of the "Grandmother Mary" who gave the name to the page, born CHAVETAS 3.0.
Before "rolling up" like a blind I would like to make one thing clear. CHAVETAS 3.0 is born thanks to you. Thanks to the many people who encouraged me to continue publishing trips when I was less animated. Thanks to so many people that if I started to list you all, I wouldn't have space in the new format. And to all of you, as I have said in the old keys I want to tell you ... THANK YOU
The idea of Keys 3.0 has long been running through my head. The most popular criticisms of Keys 2.0 was his "insipidity." His blog format is thick and colorful. It was then that I came up with the idea of give it more color and a more "comic" format.
In August, and after your encouragement, I decided to start drawing what I wanted. The first sketches were something like this ...
Finally, the design would look something like this ...
But there was a lot of work behind that design. I needed to expand the width to get clearer photos, I needed it to be as usable as the previous one. And of course, he didn't want her to lose the "complicity" that characterized her.
Elias It is who from the first moment encouraged me to carry out this adventure and who has returned to support me both emotionally and from its programming (the drop-down, touching the code, the script of the header and much internal that makes it very easy for me to upload photos on trips and "rare" countries). With Elias I already agreed on some getaway through Madrid. We have known each other since 1995 or 1996 and without it, none of this would be possible
But in addition to my old friend and "crazy computer scientist", for this new adventure, that missing component has been added to us to be able to bring that freehand drawn paper to a web. His name is Ivan, and is the webmaster of PIDETUSDIBUJOS.COM. He is not only an excellent designer, but a great person. What we could laugh with the "crazy designer", hehehe. The first sketches were born like this ...
Currently, CHAVETAS 3.0 is nothing but a base of what it has to be. There will still be many fixed to make and some errors to repair. We have arrived with the tongue out, and we would have needed another fortnight, but that we leave for January ... What is clear is that the change in color is noticeable.
I hope you like it, and if you can report the mistakes you see, then surely still much to polish.
A big hug
Isaac (and Elias and Ivan)
